Left fielder Skip Schumaker of the Reds leaps but can’t reach a double by the Braves’ Chris Johnson.

CINCINNATI — Skip Schumaker probably won’t get the call next week when the Reds need a fifth starting pitcher, but the utility player put on perhaps the most impressive performance of last night's game.

Schumaker pitched a scoreless ninth inning in the Reds’ 8-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves in front of 20,243 in Great American Ball Park.

“Well, I’d say when the highlight of your game is that Skip Schumaker threw a scoreless inning, that says enough about the game in and of itself,” Reds manager Bryan Price said.
